The 1977 Excavations of French Fort St. Pierre (1719-1729): Adaptation on the Louisiane Frontier  

Author(s): LisaMarie Malischke

Year: 2013

Summary

Dr. Ian W. Brown excavated the site of French Fort St. Pierre, near Vicksburg, Mississippi, from 1974 to 1976. A 1977 season by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History was never fully reported. As part of a new dissertation project, an initial report as to the contents of this collection will be presented. The artifact assemblage suggests that the garrison and other inhabitants of Fort St. Pierre suffered from a lack of supplies that led them to adapt to frontier life by turning to Native neighbors for goods and support.
